The continuation of single status among small and medium farmers

Chambres d' Agriculture ( 837, Supplement): 4 pp.
The continuation of single status among small and medium farmers
In 1992 it was revealed that among French farmers and farm workers aged 35-40, an unusually high proportion were single. This characteristic has persisted and this article examines the reasons for this disparity which affects primarily small and medium farmers. Since the 1970s there has been an increase in the number of couples living together, but this does not apply to older farmers. The proportion of farmers aged 35-54 years without a partner remains at around 16.5%.
